Hi we're thinking of going to New York with our 2 DDs (6 and 3). Apart from the in-flight entertainment, what do you recommend to keep them quiet entertained for 7 hours? I'm sure I've seen a thread about this but can't find it. Am thinking of taking snacks etc as I've just read the food is not great for little ones. I guess sandwiches, fruit, crisps.
Any advice for keeping the difficult second sibling in their seat would also be welcome
We used to buy those lucky dip bags that you got from woolworths -that shows my age! I'd buy some cheap crap from pound land to give to them on the flight and give them little presents every hour or something. You might want to take your own headphones for your kids as you only just get the standard headphones which may be too big and uncomfortable for them. Also much of this depend on who you fly with.
Thanks for your help. On our way to the airport now! We've got them little play mobile things to give them hourly, their own headphones and are flying with Virgin (already checked the movies/TV) and they also give them "a backpack full of stuff". Going to pick up some boiled sweets for take off. Ready to go!!
